Here is a verse that slapped me in the face this morning:
But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 1 Corinthians 6:17
I’ve probably read this verse a hundred times, but for some reason, it never impacted me like today. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, and he gave us his wisdom and discernment as a gift. We are one spirit with him! Some of y’all need to tune in; just saying. Being one spirit with God should stop us in our tracks from doing stuff that is counter to his righteousness, yet we struggle daily to keep our minds and bodies free from sin. It should also stop us from putting ourselves down; it seems that would be a sin against him, too. We know our sin is an offense to ourselves and others affected by it, but knowing that we are subjecting God to our sin takes it to a whole different level. Keeping this in context, if you are involved in adultery or fornication, what are you doing?! That’s very troubling. If ever there was a verse that needed to be bound on your fingers and written on the tablet of your heart, this would be it! Consider your actions, and remember that you are one spirit with Jesus!
